YASMEEN’S SQUARE ROTIS
6 cups of flour
2 tsp salt
2 cups of boiling water
2 cups of butter ghee melted/ or 250 g butter
1/2 cup of cooking oil
Sift flour and salt in a large dish.
Make a mixture of melted butter ghee and oil and pour half the mixture into the flour and set the other half aside.
Add the boiling water to the mixture and form into a soft dough.
Divide dough into small golf ball size portions.
Roll each portion round, drop a tablespoon of ghee mixture then fold like a handkerchief in a square.
Now roll that flat and fry making sure to place a spoon of ghee on each side as you flip the roti over.
This recipe yields a lot so for smaller families it should be halved.
